Neutral Accents for Your Home

Tin Tealight House

Neutral decor does not equate to boring decor; at least, it doesn't have to with home accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

White, cream, beige, natural, ivory, tan; these neutral tones can even out vibrant colors or form a foundation for redecorating in any room. From solid to printed neutrals and from the floor to your windows, we have just the right home accents to complement the pieces you already love in your home.

Neutral furniture creates a fresh palette in any room. Using basic pieces like tables and chairs with whitewash, beige or cream finishes will give you more versatility with your decor; bolder accents like rugs, wall decor and curtains will create an equal balance with the white, and you can change these accents out more often with the assurance that they will complement your furniture. Many of our dining collections, stools, benches and our Shaker Collection pieces are offered in white, so you're sure to find just the right neutral furniture to fit your style.

Perhaps the simplest way to incorporate the neutral scheme into your home decor, area rugs will provide coverage to your floors and comfort to your feet. We suggest not opting for a plain neutral rug, rather, choose one with a print or with subtle, pale colors in the fibers. This will make your floors part of the decorative aspect of your home, and may provide you with a little inspiration in finishing your decorating.

Home Accents

When a room in your home has as much personal style in it as you can imagine, but it still feels like it's missing something, think neutral! A garland or wreath that features white flowers will complement any decor and will add a fresh, garden look to your home. For a dining room or bedroom that needs just a little change, go beige or natural with chair pads on your classic chairs and linens on your bed or accent bench. Finally, wall decor in neutral and wooden palettes look great on a bold accent wall and can create or maintain a natural or rustic look in any room.

Lace & Crochet

White and cream lace are the best options for creating a light and airy feel for your windows or furniture. In the form of placemats or runners, lace and crochet can dress up any surface, whether on a dining room table around the holidays, a kitchen counter or a hallway table surrounded by figurines, an accent lamp, or family photos. Don't worry about clashing colors or decor styles - netural toned lace or crochet accents will only add to the decorative appeal.
